A bluebird sees the outside world for the first time

As the walls in their home press inward, the nestlings continue to jostle for a comfortable position.   The chicks take turns carrying out vigorous wing flapping exercises several times a day to strengthen their wing muscles.    This youngster takes the inchoative of his or her new found strength to climb to the edge of the nestbox entrance to see what is happening outside.   A little hesitant to make that momentous jump, the chick decides to stay in the safety of the nestbox a little longer.

  1. I’m a musician composing music inspired by animals and the natural world, and I have to say; I just love the site and the videos/photography! By the way; the photo of Steve Greer and the owl just makes my day. I cannot help smiling whenever I look at it! Thank you for your work!
